LSU will be without one of the Tigers' starters in the secondary as Rickey Jefferson will be out for a significant amount of time after an injury in Wednesday's practice to his leg, Ed Orgeron confirmed. There was not a timetable for a return, but it's not soon.
"He broke his leg. It was a leg whip. It wasn't live contact. We hope he'll be back."
The senior has 22 tackles, an interception and a pass breakup on the year.
John Battle will get the start for LSU at safety opposite of Jamal Adams.
The Advocate's Ross Dellenger was first to report the news.
